Bar’s Advertising Task Force gets its marching orders

first_img Bar’s Advertising Task Force gets its marching orders The Florida Bar’s Advertising Task Force 2004 has held its first meeting which included a review of Bar advertising regulations and a discussion of the challenges the group faces.Bar President-elect Kelly Overstreet Johnson, who has made the review of ad rules a priority for her upcoming year leading the Bar, gave the panel its charge at the March 9 meeting in Tampa.The panel is to review Bar advertising rules and recommend any needed changes, including alterations that would clarify the meaning of the rules and help provide notice to Bar members of the rules’ intent, Johnson said. She also called for a specific review of the Bar’s requirement that most ads be reviewed, including whether the Bar can require that those ads be filed prior to broadcast or publication.Current Bar rules require the filing be no later than concurrent with the first broadcast or publication.Johnson also asked the task force to submit its final report to the Board of Governors in the 2004-05 Bar year, her presidential year which starts July 1.Former Bar President Ben Hill, who chaired the 1995-97 Joint Presidential Task Force on Advertising, gave the task force a history of Bar advertising regulations.The Bar’s first advertising commission was set up in the late 1980s, a few years after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bates decision made lawyer advertising legal, he said. The majority opinion predicted only routine legal services would lend themselves to advertising, and personal injury and criminal matters would not be likely candidates for ads. Dissenters predicted a glut of misleading ads that would damage the profession.The first ads, Hill said, were relatively restrained, but by the late 1980s ads were frequently misleading and deceptive. The Bar launched a two-year review, including a study that showed the public had a lower opinion of the legal system because of lawyer advertising.That commission recommended, the Board of Governors approved, and the Florida Supreme Court included in Bar rules some of the toughest regulations on lawyer advertising in the country. They included the requirement that most ads be submitted to the Bar for review, a ban on promising results in ads, limitations on images that could be shown in ads, a ban on using nonlawyer spokespersons in broadcast ads, and a ban on direct mail solicitations for 30 days following a personal injury.The latter regulation led to a legal challenge that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which in The Florida Bar v. Went For It, Inc., upheld the regulation in a 5-4 decision. It was the first time the high court had upheld any state bar advertising rule.Following that decision, Hill said the Bar launched its second review of ads and its rules, which he chaired. That commission had the goal of improving the advertising regulations, and it recommended many changes, including television and Internet ads. Most of the changes made in the wake of the commission’s recommendations are still in effect, Hill said.He also advocated a periodic review of ad rules and urged the task force to retain rules as a restraint on advertising and to avoid ads that can mislead the public.Following Hill, the task force heard from Bar outside counsel Barry Richard, who represented the Bar on the U.S. Supreme Court appeal, Ethics Counsel Elizabeth Tarbert, who oversees the Bar’s advertising rules, and Legal Division Director Tony Boggs. Boggs reported on the Statewide Advertising Grievance Committee, which was set up two years ago to bring uniformity to prosecution of ad rule violations.Following the presentations, task force members had a wide-ranging discussion about lawyer advertising. Several members said it is important to have clear, fair, and simple rules that are enforced. Others said while there is a potential for misleading advertising, it’s also important to realize good advertising can educate the public about legal issues and their rights and — since most don’t know an attorney — help find a lawyer if they need one.The task force chair is former Board of Governors member Manny Morales of Miami, and board member Charles Chobee Ebbets of Daytona Beach is vice chair.Other members are Naples attorney Basil L. Bain, Tampa attorney John C. Bales, state Assistant Attorney General Linzie F. Bogan of Tallahassee, Live Oak attorney John R.J. Bullard, Allstate Insurance attorney Mina C. Bustamante of Jacksonville, Nova Southeastern University School of Law Professor Debra M. Curtis, Tampa attorney William F. “Casey” Ebsary, Jr., Orlando attorney Michael R. Hammond of Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund, Ft. Myers attorney Kelly K. Huang, Tallahassee attorney S. Curtis Kiser, Hollywood attorney Rozalyn Landisburg, Palm Beach Gardens attorney Theodore J. Leopold, Pensacola attorney Ann E. Meador, Tampa attorney Shane T. Munoz, nonlawyer John L. Remsen, Jr., of Ft. Lauderdale who advises law firms on marketing, board member Robert A. Rush of Gainesville, Pensacola attorney David L. Sellers, Tampa attorney Bill Wagner, and Tallahassee attorney Matthew R. Willard.The task force has tentatively agreed to meet again in May, although it had not set a date as this News went to press. Members also authorized Morales to appoint subcommittees to study various parts of the advertising rules.

Between the lines: SU’s offensive line prepares for Bulls’ pressure-filled front four

first_img Published on October 6, 2010 at 12:00 pm Good thing Andrew Tiller isn’t a stats guy. If the 6-foot-5, 338-pound right guard were a stats guy, the nerves — nerves he swears he and the Syracuse offensive line won’t have heading into its matchup against South Florida’s defensive line Saturday — might just emerge. ‘I haven’t even looked at the stats, to tell you the truth,’ Tiller said. The stats for USF: a school-record seven sacks in its 31-3 win over Florida Atlantic Saturday. Three forced turnovers versus the Owls last week. The No. 1 ranked pass defense in the Big East (161.5 yards allowed per game). An average score for their opposition through four games of just 17 points per game. Daunting. And beyond the stats, there are the words of Tiller’s head coach and offensive line coach. Monday, Doug Marrone said this USF defensive line, in its first year under new head coach Skip Holtz and defensive tackles coach Kevin Patrick, is better than last year’s version. It is better than the line that had current New York Giant Jason Pierre-Paul and former Big East Defensive Player of the Year George Selvie. It is better than the line that entered the Carrier Dome last year, held the Orange to 2.5 yards per rush, forced five Greg Paulus interceptions, sacked Paulus three times and pulled away for the 34-20 win, capped off by an 18-yard interception return for a touchdown by Pierre-Paul himself.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Yes, they are better than that team. Quicker. More polished. But for Tiller and Marrone, the SU offensive line group feels it can stick with, and maybe even dominate, the USF defensive line Saturday in Tampa, Fla., (noon, Big East Network) in what will probably be the most important matchup determining the outcome of the game. ‘This group of defensive linemen really step it up from a standpoint of athleticism,’ Marrone said. ‘I give them a lot of credit. They go 110 percent the whole time.’ This year’s group is a much different group from the NFL-talent led line that dominated the SU offensive line for most stretches in the Dome last year. It starts with the two replacement defensive ends, seniors Craig Marshall and David Bedford, who Marrone said were better than Pierre-Paul and Selvie. Working toward the inside, there is Cory Grissom at defensive tackle. And then there is ‘No. 97.’ Tiller’s ‘No. 97:’ nose tackle Terrell McClain. Every SU lineman has a specific matchup. ‘For me, it is No. 97,’ Tiller said. ‘But we still need to look at them as a whole. It’s not just one person. But 97, he is a pretty good player.’ Tiller’s words on McClain sum up just how the Orange will need to confront the USF line, and also how Marrone himself has been preparing. Facing so much talent, but more importantly, so much speed, each SU offensive lineman will need to keep his head on somewhat of a swivel, matching up against their assignments while trying to keep the USF front four contained as a whole. With his own words, Marrone swiveled back and forth between what exactly his unit needs to do. Yes, there are the individual assignments SU needs to win at each offensive line position. But he added his line is one which plays its best together as a whole, when everyone is clicking and communicating together. ‘We’re going to have to win those one-on-one battles,’ Marrone said. ‘In the run game, we’ll need to make sure we stay on the blocks and keep our feet going in front of them and just cover those players up to give us some opportunities to create some holes.’ Added Marrone: ‘The combination of all five who play well. It is the combination. Offensive line goes hand-in-hand — all five have to play well for there to be production. If one of them doesn’t play well and is getting beat in a one-on-one battle, then that causes a lot of problems for the whole game.’ Simulating a Marshall or Bedford off the end this week for the Orange has been defensive end Brandon Sharpe. Sharpe, a backup at the defensive end position who has made eight tackles and had one sack on the year, has been called upon on the scout team to enact the particular play of the two USF ends Marrone speaks so highly of. His assignment: To attack with a ‘speed to power’ playing style the Bulls defensive ends have played with through the first four games of the season. That is the way Tiller and Sharpe described it. When watching the Bulls on tape, the front four is constantly looking to bat down hands. And they use moves, a lot of moves — and different ones at that. So Sharpe has had to remain creative. And he said the main two linemen he frequented as the USF dummy this week, Tiller and right tackle Michael Hay, performed well. The reason for it is the improvement in technique stemming from the better communication Marrone harped on. With better communication comes less thinking and more reaction time for the technique. Calls are crisp. And less reaction is always good. But at that, it is an even more familiar communication for the duo on SU’s right side, thanks to the fact that they played at Nassau Community College. ‘Their communication is really tight,’ Sharpe said. ‘Their communication is just crazy. The way they are bonding, I’m like, ‘Wow.” Any kind of a ‘wow’ factor Sharpe is seeing in practice is much different than a ‘wow’ coming in SU’s game in Tampa versus this D-line Saturday. Tiller’s ‘No. 97’ is not from NCC. Marshall and Bedford are not Sharpe. They have each registered six more tackles on the season than Sharpe. Tiller might say he expects dominance every week from his unit, but this is still an offensive line with four new starters. This is still an offensive line that failed to supply Delone Carter with regular gaping holes against second-tier opponents like Akron, Maine and Colgate until the second half versus the Raiders. This is the same offensive line that allowed three sacks and constant Ryan Nassib rushes out of the pocket, versus Washington. South Florida isn’t the same as UW. Tiller thinks they are better. At least on film, he said they look better than UW. On the USF-Florida Atlantic tape, he came to that conclusion. He briefed himself on the look of the front four. Even if he didn’t familiarize himself with the stats. And when envisioning how he wants to dominate USF Saturday, Tiller pictured two minutes versus the Huskies. The 2:19 to start the game in which everything seemed to be clicking. Even if the SU protection broke down and Nassib scrambled 28 yards to the end zone. It was two minutes of drilling the Washington defensive line. But this USF front four will be drilling with that ‘speed to power’ right back. Tiller and the line know they need to provide not a two-minute drill, but a 60-minute plow for the Orange to win. Said Tiller: ‘It always comes down to the defensive line and offensive line.’ [email protected] Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
